Custom icon for dropdown items

I was wondering if anyone knows how to swap out the caret for a ionicon in a list item.

<div class="list card" ng-show="(sponsors.length >= 1)">
<ion-list>
<ion-item ng-repeat="sponsor in sponsors" class="item item-icon-right" on-hold="editSponsor(sponsor)" ng-click="viewSponsor(sponsor)">
{{::sponsor.first_name}} {{::sponsor.last_name}} <i class="icon ion-android-more-vertical"></i>
</ion-item>
</ion-list>
<a class="item item-icon-left energized" ng-click="new_sponsor()">
<i class="icon ion-plus"></i> Add another Sponsor
</a>
</div>

Something like this?
